. president obama was the popular vote winner, with more than 60 million people choosing him to go back again, despite all the negativity. he's the first democratic president since franklin roosevelt to be re-elected with more than 50% of the vote. did they report that on fox news today? probably not. the last time a president was re-elected, this is how he defined his victory. >> when you win, this is a feeling that the people have spoken and embraced your point of view. that's what i intend to tell the congress. i earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now i intend to spend it. >> did you see president obama talking about that? maybe that's his problem, i don't know. president obama has political capital on his side right now. he told america this is how he plans to use it. >> i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties, to meet the challenges we can only solve together. reducing our deficit, reforming our tax code, fixing our immigration system, freeing ourselves from foreign oil. we've got more work to do. >> a little bit different, isn't

. who wants it more? president obama kicked off a three-state barn storm on the eve of the election in madison, wisconsin. he brought along bruce springsteen to rally the crowd and keep the badger state blue. then it was off to columbus, ohio, where the president was joined by rapper jay-z. >> i told jay-z the other day, our lives are parallel a little bit. nobody, i think, would expect us to be where we are today when they had met us as younger men. both of us now have daughters. both of us have wives who are more popular than we are. >> president obama was having fun on the last day of the campaign. bruce springsteen drove home the point of tomorrow oes hope. >> the american dream, the american reality. our vote tomorrow is the one undenial way we get to determine the distance in that equation. >> president obama delivered his closing message to ohio. the state he's visited more times than any other in 2012. >> we've made real progress, ohio, but the reason why we're here is because we have more work to do. our work is not yet done. as long as there is a single american who wants
for president obama is that he has a firewall in the midwest or at least his campaign hopes that. actually, the election results come on tuesday might very well hinge on whether that firewall truly exists or not. according to our polls that you just showed in iowa, president obama has a lead. in wisconsin, it's a smaller lead. some other public polls suggest that as well. however, the romney campaign has made it adamantly clear that according to their polls in iowa, the race is dead even. so it really kind of matters where you actually see the race right now. but it's largely going to come down, as chuck pointed out, to the midwest and that's why you'll see president obama campaigning in ohio, wisconsin, iowa a lot these last five days. >> amy, let me bring you in. i know to mark's point, i believe it was one of the romney advisers or a supporter who said i think the word was "crap" when it comes to polls, at least the ones they didn't like to see. nevertheless, you can disagree with the percentage point here or there, but we've not seen a poll where governor romney is leading in a battleg

for president obama and keep faith with the current direction. half will vote with varying degrees of anger to depart from it. to who knows in one of the various directions governor romney has offered. with him you need a weather map to know what road he's going to take on any given day. the question looms now of how this country will get together the day of tomorrow. i always think that's important, but it's more important now because of our form of government, the division in the country. barring a landslide, it's going to take both sides to move ahead to meet debt reduction, immigration, education, and competition in an increasingly competitive world. both sides. got it? whatever happens tomorrow, we need a working national unity when it's over. that's a fact. our two guests are the best. nbc's political director chuck todd and howard fineman. let's look at this. let's start right now and look at the last words. here's romney today in lynchburg. >> paul ryan and my vision is to limit government rather than limiting the dreams of our fellow americans. now, our choice tomorrow is going to

president obama is preparing to speak before a ton of reporters in milwaukee. the president won wisconsin in 2008 with 56% of the vote in that state. this time around, the campaign, though, admits the state could be in play with congressman paul ryan on the gop ticket. we'll bring you the president's remarks live from milwaukee as soon as they get things started there. >>> and after weeks of polls that put the race up in the air, there are signs the president is solidifying a top position in the race. take a look at this. two new nbc news "wall street journal" polls, pairist polls shows the president holding on to a six-point lead in ohio. you know the importance of that state by now. and two points ahead of governor romney in florida. but within the margin of error. also, early voting in florida ends today after the number of early voting days in that state is cut by half this year. 25 million people have already voted early in 34 states and washington, d.c. >>> and back to the frenetic pace on the campaign trail. both candidates have already held rallies in new hampshire, iowa, and wisc

was a bit swept up in that moment. remember the front page of the new york times after the election, obama, racial barrier falls in decisive victory. the victory was decisive, but the barrier had not fallen. then senator obama was simply hoisted over it, propelled by decades of civil rights demonstrations. hard won legislative victories, educational opportunities and shifting racial boundaries. but senator mccain, "the new york times" and frankly many pundits writing in the heady moments of the victory failed to articulate how firmly the barriers remained intabt. the win was a culmination, not the single definitive, most sought after culmination, but a culmination of racial struggles. but it was not the initiation of a new era. as if to prove the point, the racialized attacks on president obama were swift and hardly subtle. the most obvious being the unrelenting demands for the president to prove his citizenship to a well-organized fringe of radical birthers, the election of a black president doesn't tell us much about the structural barriers that continue to face the vast majority of blac
